Updated: December 04, 2013

Well, this will be my first review of a premium WordPress theme on this blog, the WPZoom Review.

I’ve the luck to test the WPzoom Themes and Framework along with the TechCompass Theme.

The WPZoom Framework is a solid base and you’ve a good variety of functional themes to choose from. You’ve themes for: Business, Magazine/News, Portfolio, Multimedia and some Free options.

Obviously, you install the theme as any other theme: upload the zip file, activate and done.
It has also automatic updates; I updated the framework and really it was 1 click, super easy.

Without further ado, let’s go into the meaty details!

 

WPzoom Review – Framework

WPzoom Themes Pros

  • General WP theme settings with options of adding: logo, favicon, feed url, twitter and search form in the header
  • Global posts control excerpt length (if it is allowed), show thumbnail, read more, show date/time, etc.

 

wpzoom review - single post options

wpzoom review - seo options

 

  • SEO basic features – you don’t need additional plugin, except you delve deep into the SEO theme
  • Social sharing widget incorporated – you don’t need an additional plugin, unless you want another style to display your social buttons.
  • Custom code: Header code and Footer code & Analytics
  • Import export of Theme options, good to transport the data to another site
  • Import export of Widgets
  • Facebook widget
  • Add recent flickr images with a special widget

 

WPzoom Themes Cons

Font size: I can change the size, but not the type of fonts, at least without touching internal code. Sometimes you need to put different fonts to avoid monotony for the reader, but I couldn’t change them.

Update: After the TechCompass 1.1 update to the latest version 1.1.2, now it’s possible to style the fonts in family and bold/italic, etc.

The WPZoom Framework is applicable to all the themes, being a robust piece of software with several customizations without coding.
WPzoom themes have detailed tutorials, documentation and custom features depending on the theme you choose.

 

TechCompass Theme, Points to Highlight:

Sincerely, I like this specific theme for its functionality, presence and flexibility. Here are some features to underline:

  • Double menu – nice addition, I want it for my own blog ;)
  • Related posts widget is an interesting option that avoids you to install a plugin for that function. At this review, in my test site is working fine, I don’t know for blogs with tons of posts, the results of the related posts how can it works in terms of precision.
  • There is a very good documentation available for this theme, and for the other themes.

Overall, TechCompass theme is a good option for bloggers and entrepreneurs.

 

While I was doing the exploration of the Framework and TechCompass theme, I had some doubts and I found the answers in the general documentation. Therefore, I didn’t need any contact to support.
